A Great Viking Hoard Story

Post by Steve Rice »

Fancy drooling over some great pics. Thought this might interest a few. An old story but great reading.

The hoard contains no less than 464 silver coins, plus 24 ingots (whole and cut), a rounded globule of silver and a plaited arm ring. The coins are as follows: Anglo-Saxon pennies (Aethelred II and Cnut) = 80; Hiberno-Scandinavian pennies = 324, plus one cut halfpenny; 'Irish Sea' imitation pennies of Cnut's quatrefoil type = 11; Hiberno- Scandinavian/Manx transitional pennies = 30.
